Last Name: Moritz
Bio: Frederick Moritz was for many years the legendary principal bassoon of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He taught at least two generations of bassoonists, some of whom still hold important positions in the bassoon world. His influence on important aspects of bassoon playing, such a venting of the middle register notes, double tonguing, etc., gave him a leadership role in American bassoon playing that persists to the present day.
